Shaftesbury GPs Use Software To Identify And Support Patients At Risk Of Falls

The Blackmore Vale GP practice that operates Shaftesbury’s Abbey View Medical Centre will use software to identify and support patients who may be likely to suffer a fall.

Sara Froud explains how the pilot uses data from a variety of local social and healthcare providers. At risk residents will be invited to fortnightly events at Shaftesbury FC.
